I built this one out of an old houseboat that was brought to Bella Coola to house FAN (Forest Action Network) protesters back in the early 80’s. It sank and was recovered then left to rot for the next 25 years – till I bought it for $1. By that point any wood left in the structure had turned to dirt – everything had to be rebuilt. Having very little money, I built the cabin out of reclaimed lumber. All of the appliances were taken out of old trailers left abandoned by loggers long ago. I now rent it out to tourists to stay on board while visiting the Great Bear Rainforest.

A completely restored houseboat in Bella Coola, British Columbia, Canada. Owned and shared by Carsten Ginsburg.
